Welcome to APSR 2020

It is with great pleasure to announce that the 25th Congress of the Asian Pacific Society of Respirology (APSR 2020) will take a place at the Kyoto International Conference Center, in the World Heritage Site of Japan's Ancient Capital “Kyoto”, which will be held at the beginning of the beautiful fall season, dated on the 15th to 18th, October 2020.


We are making plans for APSR 2020 by shedding light on “come together” to discuss “our future”. Firstly, 20 different symposia organized by young doctors called “emerging talent symposia” to nurture and encourage them; secondly, symposia at which experts from industry, government and academia can come together to debate current and future strategies for uncovering mechanisms and providing therapy for various respiratory diseases; thirdly symposia for debating ambient and household air-related health; and finally, symposia for discussing career plans that can provide all individuals with equal opportunity. We intend to ensure APSR 2020 is an innovative and beneficial event that will cover issues including the training and development of the next generation of Respirologists, not only harnessing the vigor present in academia but also in industry, and the dissemination of information from the Asia-Pacific region to the rest of the world.


In the calm and serene setting of the ancient capital, Kyoto, as the leaves start changing color in autumn, we hope the APSR2020 will help everyone contemplate their future, the future of respirology and find inspiration to take a step forward to reach future aspirations.


We are sincerely awaiting your active participation.
